Ricotta Apple Cake


8 serves
1 hour


A delicious moist cake that is perfect to make for guests who drop in for a coffee or tea.

The recipe calls for Lievito Vanigliato but you can replace this with a combination of 1.5 teaspoons of baking powder and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.




500g Smooth Ricotta
250g unsalted butter
500g plain flour
3-4 granny smith apples
lemon juice, optional
300g sugar
1 Lievito Vanigliato (or combination of baking powder and vanilla extract as detailed above)
cinnamon, optional
4 eggs
100ml milk
icing sugar, to serve


1 Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan-forced). Grease a bundt tin with butter and dust with flour.
2 Peel and cut the apples into quarters. Remove the core. Chop into small cubes place slices in a bowl. You may want to add lemon juice (this prevents the apple from browning) and toss to combine.
3 Combine flour, sugar and Lievito vanigliato. If you like, you can also add some lemon zest and cinnamon for flavour. Then stir through the eggs, ricotta and milk.
4 Lastly stir through the apple. Spoon into the tin and bake for 30-40 minutes.
5 Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Then turn out on a plate, dust with icing sugar.
